    Colonial Williamsburg Visit

    We're going to Colonial Williamsburg for our annual family camping trip. We're staying at Chippokes Plantation State Park, which is located across the James River from Williamsburg. Other than the obvious Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown Battlefield, is there anything any of you would recommend we add to our visit while we're there? I was there 20+ years ago when I was in the high school band, but don't really remember much from the trip (other than being sick on the tour bus ). Thanks! Beth
